Smoky Mountain Outdoors Gtalinburg

Smoky Mountain Outdoors promises you the journey of a lifetime on the beautiful Pigeon River in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Smoky Mountain Outdoors (SMO) is one of the premier rafting companies in the Smokies with over 23 years of experience and they love taking people down the river and giving them an unforgettable experience. They offer three different trips, an upper Pigeon, Lower Pigeon and Upper Pigeon Extreme. Let me tell you about each one.

Whitewater Rafting in the Smokies

The Lower Pigeon River Rafting trip is a great family trip or an ideal trip for those who want a relaxing and fun ride down the river. You travel down the river at a little slower speed as there are fewer rapids that will give you a gentle thrill but they are safe enough for young children. In fact, kids love the Lower Pigeon trip because there is time to play, to splash and to enjoy the ride. Kids need to be at least 3 years old an accompanied by an adult.

The Upper Pigeon River Raft trip is an exciting 6.5 mile thrill ride down Class III and IV rapids. Hold on to your paddle as your guide navigates the river and the rapids while you supply the power when needed. You will run about 70 rapids during this trip and will experience plenty of big waves and lots of splashing water. Of course you are wearing life jackets and helmets and you are in the secure hands of an experienced guide.

The Upper Pigeon Extreme trip is for thrill seekers. You travel in a smaller, 4-person raft that your guide will direct right into the heart of the waves. You will shoot the mightiest part of the rapids and hydraulics as your guide pushes the limits and heads for the go-for-it-lines for a fast, exciting and extreme ride down the Pigeon River.

Smoky Mountain Outdoors prepares you and your family or group for each adventure that you choose. You will be safe and well-prepared for the trip but nothing will prepare you for the beauty, the enjoyment and the thrill of riding down the Pigeon River in a whitewater raft. This is something you must experience for yourself.
